2021.12.05 20:41 bushofire Dramatic improvement using herbals, now relapsed…? I had PERFECT stools.. for a while!
Hey all. I’ve had IBS for the last 4 years. I was previously “normal” when it came to bowel movements and never had any gut issues. My symptoms came on after a bout of gastroenteritis; I had hardcore diarrhoea for a week, began to improve but failed to return to normal. I’ve had IBS-M ever since. I took a SIBO breath test which came back very slightly elevated levels of methane. I do not believe this is the sole cause of my issues. I’ve tried countless meds, diets, cutting out dairy, gluten, FODMAP free, all to no avail.
For the last 4 years all of my bowel movements have been loose, diarrhoea, or irregular little pieces, and on average I’d have to use the bathroom at least 3x a day. I’m diagnosed as IBS-M as despite my stools being mostly loose - they can be a real struggle to pass.. but once the gates are open, so to speak, welcome to hell.
I recently started to learn about herbal antibiotics and their potential benefits - there’s lots of studies attesting to their effectiveness and being just as effective as synthetic antibiotics. I decided to embark on a course of Oil of oregano (150mg, 3x per day), Allicin (540mg, 3x per day, and Berberine (500mg, 3x per day). I started at much lower doses and worked up to the doses stated above over a period of approx 2 weeks. My symptoms started to improve almost instantly. For the first time in 4 years I had long, solid, normal stools! A miracle.. for real! I only needed to use the bathroom once or twice a day. I would still struggle to finish at times, but at least my stools have been normal! I’ve been so stoked.
I’ve been taking the meds at the high doses listed above for 6 weeks, which is the advised amount of time before one should stop (so I read??) as any longer at such a dose could start doing harm to the gut microbiome. I have started to lower the dose over the last week, as to slowly come to an end as opposed to abruptly stopping. Unfortunately during this last week at a lower dose, all of my symptoms have started to return again. My bowels are now loose. Diarrhoea has returned. I’m struggling and straining again. I’m needing 3+ trips to the bathroom a day (today I’ve been 5 times..).
Does anyone have advice? Should I increase my dose back to what I was taking? Is it safe to continue using those herbs are such a high dose? (I think the oil of oregano is the one which has warnings about long term use). I do not know what to do. For the last month I’ve been thinking my life has started to go back to normal, like I was 4 years ago, but now it’s slipping away again… verysadface.
Would love to know of any similar experiences and advice.

2021.12.05 20:41 takagiiii Does her parry work exactly like Beidou’s?
I’m aware that their mechanics are pretty much the same, but I’m not sure if the “perfect counter” feature Beidou’s parry has also applies to Yun Jin. Suppose I build her as a sub-dps, would I need to parry “perfectly” for higher damage or do I just charge her skill to level 2?
Sorry for the naivety 😅 and thank you!

2021.12.05 20:41 trimaniax So what percentage of the time would you say you devote to listening to music you know you love versus discovering new music?
I remember back in the CD days that buying an album was quite the investment and I would listen to an album, or a small selection of albums (the number that would fit in my car at any given time) for a long period of time.
Nowadays I subscribe to a couple of streaming services (at the cost of what 1 CD a month used to cost!) and have access to millions of albums with new albums released each week.
I'm totally happy with the amount and variety of music that is out there, but on the other hand I seem to always be in "discovery" mode and find that I don't always revisit past albums that I enjoyed.
So, I'm curious, how often do you go back to listen to music you know you love versus discovering new music?

2021.12.05 20:41 BaconCatBug BCB's Warframe Relic Cracking Assistant | An alternative to WFInfo, track your prime relics, quickly see what Prime relics you are needing from your party's equipped relics, and get a rough idea of the most valuable relics to pick.
This spreadsheet will take the Relics your party has equipped, and cross check them with Warframe.Market's weighted average platinum price to give you an idea of the best items to take when you open the relic.
I know WFInfo exists, but I feel this alternative has merit. Made primarily for my own personal use, I have cleaned it up, made it pretty, and released it publicly for those who wish to give it a try to use it.
Any and all feedback would be appreciated.

2021.12.05 20:41 gofishing5545 Any advice on a constant sticky spot between my wife and I?
I will start by saying that I recognize I an not perfect.
I find myself becoming overly angry at my wife constantly when she exhibits unreasonable fear for unfounded situations or does not thinking logically. She is very sensative so she does not respond well to my anger (obviously)

I accidentally clicked a “free game” ad on YouTube on the website “gamdise .com” I checked virus total and there wasn’t anything malicious apparently. I haven’t heard much about this site and I deleted my website data and checked for other things on my IPhone
Does anyone know anything about this site? I closed it as soon as I clicked on it, but I do have a fast phone.

2021.12.05 20:41 Revolutionary-Emu746 Female cop in space graphic novel
Hi all, about five years ago I read a graphic novel about a female cop in space. She’d just moved there with her son to help out with some sort of issue. There’s a lot of racial tension in the precinct. At one point her son is lured out of the home and the mom’s partner is the one who saves the son.
